Vex Robotics Build Report 8/Christmas Robotic Road Trip, Part 4
After finishing the tracks this morning, we really wanted to have a robot on the ground moving, today being the last day with my uncles and all. So first we built a flat platform to go between the tracks. Then we decided to put sides on so we would not have to mount the electronics.
Around 4:00 p.m. we finished building it. We tested the bot on some tires and beams to see if it could climb over them. It worked okay, but it did not go over some of the taller stuff. So we took off the tracks and started building a new platform.
Around 5:00 p.m., we had a design and the robot had ‘tabs’ (shown in the picture below) on its tracks, but we stopped and ate dinner. For the rest of the day, we worked on it, but we did not get it done, so I’ll post more on the first of next year. Until then, I’ll keep posting about my trip!
